In a previous video https://youtu.be/RIRjwEgIwoo I had a look at a 2012 Ram 2500 with a few EVAP codes (P0456 and P0457) and the constant flashing of the "check fuel cap." We found out that the ESIM switch was bad as well as the pigtail. Napa brought us a new one and it is time to find out if that is all of the issues or not.
-Enjoy!

    Echlin parts are purchased from a dealer network and should be original equipment parts.

    jb weld on both sides

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Emil Bratten says:

    Great find on the hole

    That syl-glide does look like a pretty handy rubber lube to keep around the old bedroom, I mean shop.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Clyde Wayne Barley says:

    JB weld and done!

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Teri and TL Stanbro says:

    This guy needs a mudflap in front of the tire

    Good to see you saving a Mopar …

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Lenoir says:

    I love the video that was quite something else with a dang Russo on top of that filler neck wow

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jfolklfd10946 says:

    The rain and thunder in the background were so relaxing.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew Baruth says:

    Oh Eric, just weld up the rust hole! LOL

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Highstranger951 says:

    People would be surprised just how many different butt connectors are available. My distributor’s catalog has 6 pages of them to choose from. I personally like the nylon over the pvc jackets. Looks way more professional. I keep all four sizes in standard and epoxy filled heat shrink. I keep step-down butts in both varieties as well. Thanks for the great content Mr. O!

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael O says:

    Eric Chrysler don't use the fuel pressure sensor because like most things Chrysler, they're unreliable! 🤭

    Edit: A blob of JB Weld for the fix?

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jose rocha says:

    You know Mr O is a real mechanic when he says that hes gonna fix the issue but its gonna still broke , and he was dead nutz right … The leak was still there , great job Mr O 👏👌

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Lowe says:

    Blowin smoke up your special heat stink blue butt connectors.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Schmitz says:

    You should change your sign off to "If you can't do it, I probably can" 🤣

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alesky Finis says:

    Great work

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jack Sigler says:

    Wow, Thanks for sharing how a master figures all that out.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dale Dohlman says:

    Really enjoy your videos but we really need your rain in s.e. Iowa

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve Palenicek says:

    Eric o what it is bro

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SilentServiceCode says:

    I am JB-Welding that hole.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jesse Shelbourn says:

    🎶 As the thunder rolls and the lighting strikes 🎶

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kenneth Freeman says:

    A little JB Weld and the old Dudge will be right as rain!

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jas K says:

    Thanks alot Eric & Vanessa O

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars CLMDADE says:

    Little bit of jb weld and keep it moving…. at least temporarily.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bob Reikowski says:

    You should go check on the neighbor. Have not heard the leaf blower running lately. I know it’s raining crazy, but that never stopped him before.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JoeyLovesTrains says:

    Count yourselves lucky on getting some random pop up thunderstorms.. around me, we’ve gotten barely any measurable rain, and most of our grass is simply dead and brown… I’m in southern Plymouth Massachusetts

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rob Peabo says:

    Eric, you are working in real time, hindsight comes after the fact. The fact are the switch was faulty, you fixed it it, then moved on to the next thing. You said in part one that there may be an another issue, turns out there was. Nothing wrong with your process. a rust hole is unfortunate, especially when there may not me an OEM direct replacement if the fuel inlet was hobbled from something else.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Thatdave says:

    Oh,I was getting excited that you were going to shove the welder tip into the fuel cap hole and weld the rusty leak shut 😛😛😛😛😛😛 excitement in your day !
    Wonder why it's rusting out ,is the cap housing holding water around it ???If he is a farmer,then the build up of animal poo might be adding to the issue

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michel Swerissen says:

    A hole in the filler neck, well there's your problem, well done sir well done.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars C.L Carrillo says:

    I always call them marine grade butt connectors

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars c0mputer says:

    Weld that up in situ, call it a day.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars brewski118sempire says:

    From my understanding of connections and wiring harnesses in general is that they are more expensive because there are additional licenses the manufacturer has to play for because most connectors are designed by a third party.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matt P says:

    Blowing smoke up your GAS. 😜

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Antonio Claudio Michael says:

    Wow nice find on that small hole behind the Gas cap Eric O good Video as always @SouthMainAutoRepairLLC

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars calholli says:

    I'd probably smudge some JB-weld on the outside of that hole there after hitting it with a little wire wheel and call it good enough. It's just a work truck and not worth taking all that stuff apart. Another thing you could do if you were brave enough if wrap a string around a wet towel and shove it in the filler– and wipe everything down and blow it off real good with the air hose to make sure there were no fumes—- and zap that little hole with a mig welder right there in it's place……….. I'd be using the JB-weld myself.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Keith Aguirri says:

    Huuummm 🤔 Alrighty then… Guess we'll never know what happened. Did ya like that guilt trip Eric 😂.. Closure.. gotta have closure man. Oh well…. Just kidding brother 😁 Don't get your feathers all ruffled 😂. Hey… NAPA called.. they said your sponsorship is ready… Lol.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Antonio Claudio Michael says:

    Connectors are exspensive compared to switches Never understood that and toyota sells the plug seperate of the wires which can get even more exspensive Eric O nice that napa supplies the entire pig tail in one peice @SouthMainAutoRepairLLC

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars RP Smith says:

    I learned a bunch! Thanks!

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rick Ptak says:

    Another one for the “Avoca Smoka” playlist!

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Buff Barnaby says:

    You won't have that repair on electric ones. 🤣

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jeff marshall says:

    Is that rain that I hear? We don't get that here in Texas anymore. Love the video.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Melvin Jones says:

    another patch job that went wrong. Oh well you can fix it. Fix it with J B Weld. or old bubble gum.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard M says:

    Eric it sound like it raining if so I am glad you getting you get rain

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Clifford Sandefur says:

    Is there a part 3 ?

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars irgski says:

    Connectors are so expensive because there’s a monopoly between the connector manufacturers and the auto manufacturers.

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Philip Mackin says:

    JB Weld, clean hole, fill hole. Done

  49. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Benjamin Stockton says:

    Awesome as always Eric O. Appreciate it buddy 👍
